To Follow Her heart by Rebecca DeMarino Book Review
To Follow Her Heart
by Rebecca DeMarino
Duty and love are powerful forces. Only one has the power to make her life complete.
It is 1664 and Patience Terry is devastated to learn that Captain Jeremy Horton's ship has been shipwrecked off the coast of Barbados. There were no survivors. She had hoped that Jeremy would someday give up the sea and settle down with her in Southold, Long Island.
Unaware his memorial service is being planned, Jeremy sails aboard a British warship with secret orders to attack New Amsterdam and claim it for the British Crown. When he makes his surprise return to Southold--and to an overjoyed Patience--it's not quite the happily-ever-after his beloved had hoped for.
With a finely tuned sense for authentic historical characters and settings, Rebecca DeMarino plunges you into a world of tall ships, daring journeys, and yearning hearts
"To Follow Her Heart " is written by author Rebecca DeMarino. Patience Terry has always wanted Captain Jeremy Horton to be her future. Captain Horton has a ship and he loves the sea. When Patience finds out that his ship has sunk and no one was saved she is full of grief. Jeremy does not know that people believe that he has died and he just goes on with his mission. He is now sailing on a British ship that has orders that are being kept secret to claim New Amsterdam for the British. He surprises everyone when he does come back to Southhold. But, things will never be the same again. This is a story of love, hope and forgiveness. Will any of these things help to show them a future? Does he really care enough about her to give up his sea life? I was given this book for a review and these are my opinions.
